Emiliano Zapata Spoke and Wrote in Nahuatl
Part of a message written in Nahuatl to supporters of the Mexican Revolution sent from the headquarters of the Liberation Army of the South in Tlatizapán, Morelos, on April 27, 1918 by its Commander in Chief, Emiliano Zapata:
“…Axcan ocachi que me aic monequi ti mo zepampalehuizque ica nochi to yolo ihuan ica nochi totoyoquiliztli itech inon huei tequitl de necetiliztli mahuiztic, huelneli de necate tlen qui pehualtihque netehuiliztle tlen qui yolóhpia chipahuac nin pehualoni ihuán ámo qui poloa nin neltocaliz de cuali-inemiliz…”
“…Now more than ever we need to help each other with all our heart and with all our efforts in this great task of unity, which is truly the work of those who got into the fight, to keep their heart clean with those principles and to not lose faith in a life of respect…”
“…Ahora más que nunca hay necesidad de que nos ayudemos entre nosotros con todo corazón y con todo nuestro empeño en esa gran tarea de unificación digna, que es verdaderamente la tarea de los que se metieron a la lucha, que conservan limpia en su corazón esa empresa y que no pierden la fe en una vida de respeto…”
PLEDGE TO SUPPORT MODERN TIMES BOOKSTORE ON INDIEGOGO
Campaign ends January 24th, 2014. This campaign will receive all funds raised even if it does not reach its goal.
Modern Times in San Francisco is where I work. It is a wonderful resource for materials on gender, sex, and sexuality, politics, language, zines, alternative culture, and much more. Collective member Ruth Mahaney at Modern Times is also a professor at City College of San Francisco. Her Intro to LGBT Studies class I took back in fall 2010 is what helped set me on the path to studying LGBT Studies as a major and sparked my interest into the arena of academia and activism - it was no longer just personal for me.
If you can, please support this amazing resource by pledging to this campaign. You can also visit Modern Times at http://moderntimesbookstore.com/ and 2919 24th St in San Francisco.
